The Save the Bees Sweater is a top-down yoke-necked colourwork sweater celebrating the humble bee!
The sweater is knitted in DK yarn using 3.75mm needles and features a cable patterns as well as colourwork for a fun twist on a traditional sweater. There is a slight positive ease, making this sweater comfortable over layers and easy to wear.
Your kit will include the pattern and all the yarn required to knit your chosen size.*
Sizes available are:
To fit busts 28", 32", 36" 40" 44" 48" 52" 56" and 60".
Yarn quantities have been calculated for a 12" body length from underarm. If you would like a longer sweater, please select the 'with additional skein' option when making your purchase.
Please note that due to the nature of the hand dyeing process, although we try hard to ensure colours are as close as possible, we would recommend alternating your skeins during knitting.
*The dye used for the original honey colourway is no longer available. As such we will do our best to dye as close to the original colour as possible but the colour may be darker or different to that in the images shown.
** we have worked out yarn quantities and allowed a little extra based on our tension, measurements and samples. Please note that if you alter the pattern or tension then you may require additional yarn.
